How Do You Top a Birthday Gift Like That?

February 5, 2015

Well January has already slipped by and 2015 is going strong! Hope you all had wonderful family time during the holidays… and that the New Year is off to a great start! We both look forward to January, as we use my birthday for an excuse to escape for a few days of relaxation on […]

December Cow Elk Hunt- last opportunity

February 4, 2015

After the busy holidays from Thanksgiving through Christmas, I was anxious to get back out for one more try at filling my late season cow elk  tag… a storm front is rolling in and hopes are high that the elk will be up and moving…  

Getting Rid of the After Turkey Dinner Blaahs

December 3, 2014

Sitting around most of the morning feeling bogged down after overeating the past couple of days, I suddenly remembered I had a special cow elk permit burning a hole in my pocket. It was rather late in the morning when we decided to drag these old, out of shape bodies up the mountain and try […]

There have been some happy hunters out there this fall! Here’s a few pictures of our sons, Todd and Tom and their successful hunts…                                                               […]

First Deer… Priceless

November 15, 2014

It was a special experience to be with our young friend Seth, when he killed his first deer. The excitement and sense of accomplishment is priceless!               Seth had reason to feel good about his accomplishment… the weather was miserable, visibility was poor, the terrain was vertical… but the hunt […]

Final days of September

November 12, 2014

                This would be our last hunt of September 2014… so it was with a mixed feeling of sadness and anticipation that we made our way up the mountain. Things had gotten pretty hectic for Gary at work, and we didn’t know if it was going to work out […]

Mama bear and cubs encounter

October 6, 2014

I hunted hard during my Spring Bear hunt and never saw hide nor hair of a single bear. I did see a lot of elk… so it is a given that during our elk hunts we see a lot of bear! Here is a little footage of the mother bear and her two yearling cubs […]

Weeks Three and Four

October 3, 2014

The third week of September we mixed things up a bit! Gary went hunting with our son Tom, who was here visiting from Nebraska… and I had “Grandma time” with the tribe! There’s nothing like the mind of three and five year olds!! It makes you really appreciate simple things in life when you look […]

Week Two, September 13th

September 23, 2014

September always slips by too fast! Here we are in the fourth week and I don’t want it to end! After all the action in our last outing, we just couldn’t stay away from our favorite little canyon. So Saturday morning, September 13th we were at the trail head an hour before daylight. It might sound a […]

Up Close!

September 17, 2014

I posted the story of our hunt on September 6th… but here’s the video of my encounter with the bull that came within 16 yards of me! In the video you can see that I would have had an opportunity to shoot when the bull turned. I was thinking all the while he was facing […]
